• History

The Neuronano Research Center (NRC) led by Dr Jens Schouenborg, PhD is an interdisciplinary Research and Innovation center focusing on developing a new generation of neural interfaces for communication with the nervous system in basic research and clinical applications.

NRC, bridging two major science fields neuroscience and nanoscience, started in 2006 based on grants from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg foundation and a 10 year Linneaus grant from the Swedish Research Council (SRC). In 2017 Dr Jens Schouenborg and collaborators received a six year grant to develop a new type of optrode.

With researchers from the Faculties of Medicine, Engineering (LTH), Science, and Humanity the Neuronano Research Center combine:

Neuroscience, including neuroinformatics, Nano and Microtechnology, Organic Chemistry, Neuroethics

The Vision of NRC is:

“To develop Brain Machine Interfaces for groundbreaking neurophysiological research in the conscious individual and clinical applications that will improve “quality of life” for disabled and individuals with neurodegenerative diseases.”
